Edition dataEdit

Hi! I left a new comment on the book task force discussion about edition data. --Micru (talk) 17:12, 10 May 2013 (UTC)


Babel lets you view and edit more than one language on Wikidata. Just add e.g. {{#babel:de-N|en-3|es-1|fr-2|nl-3|it-4|da-0}} to your user page. Best, Littledogboy (talk) 13:38, 28 August 2013 (UTC)

Journal aliases and Scandinavian authoritiesEdit

Hi Finn, re [1] I can use a bot to automatically put the English title into the label for all those language, using the title in the Danish official journal list as a guide. I have proposed that we add identifiers for the Danish journal list at Wikidata:Property proposal/Authority control#Danish Bibliometric Research Indicator (BFI) SNO/CNO, and a property for the 'level' (Niveau) assigned to these journals at Wikidata:Property proposal/Creative work#Danish Bibliometric Research Indicator (BFI) Level. I would appreciate it if you comment on those proposed properties - I don't know the Danish research evaluation system very well, except that it appears to be almost identical to the Australian system - to confirm they are of the right type, or improve the proposal. John Vandenberg (talk) 07:48, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for bringing this up. The Finnish also has a publication site with levels: Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 16:32, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for letting me know about the Finns are doing. They have a level above '2', aptly named '3', and there are many journals with a rank of '-', which I havent yet understood the meaning of (possibly not yet assessed?). Their online database with 25,0000 records is linkable and has a lot of useful fields in it, so I've requested a property for their ID at Wikidata:Property_proposal/Authority_control#Jufo ID. I think I will do a comparison of Danish and Norwegian and Danish and Finnish levels before requesting properties for those, however if you know anyone who might be interested in that data, I can load it at their request.
User:JVbot is now loading the Danish SNO/CNO and level for journals which have an ERA ID as the first batch, which should be a very large subset of all the international journals. (It may duplicate a SNO if you have input an SNO already; a second pass will identify this and I will correct the data) Once the ID and levels are added, the bot add labels and descriptions in Danish, where those fields are currently have no value.(and I will notify you when that starts so you can spot check the results). The real fun will be after that, when the bot processes entries which have an ISSN in Wikidata but are not included in ERA, and then the entries which are 'new' Wikidata items because their ISSN does not yet appear in Wikidata. John Vandenberg (talk) 09:14, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

Direction of mergeEdit

Hi, you merged opera singer (Q13378569) in opera singer (Q12330340); however WhatLinksHere/Q12330340 is only used by one item while WhatLinksHere/Q13378569 is used by a dozen other items. Someone will have the trouble of fixing those broken links. Next time, it would be better to merge from the least-used item toward the most-used item. Cheers - LaddΩ chat ;) 14:50, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

Ok, I will be more careful next time. I just selected the lowest item. I have moved professions labeled with opera singer (Q13378569) to opera singer (Q12330340). — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 18:55, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

Hmmm... Som jeg ser det var der en fond [2] der er ophørt. Museet hedder "MICHAEL OG ANNA ANCHERS HUS SAXILDS GAARD", så vidt jeg kan se. Jeg troede egentlig der skulle være en egenskab der hed "fusioneret med", men jeg kan ikke finde den. Så fonden er ophørt, men huset er der stadig? Blot overgået? — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 13:05, 22 October 2016 (UTC)
Nu kaldes det åbenbart bare "Anchers Hus" også jvf. en folder jeg har derfra. --Villy Fink Isaksen (talk) 14:11, 22 October 2016 (UTC)
Måske er svaret er at det kommer an på hvordan samlingerne er organiseret. Inventarnummer synes at relatere sig til Anchers Hus og maleriet er måske stadig placeret der. For museet kan man vel bruge noget i retning af "del af". — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 17:34, 24 October 2016 (UTC)
Jo, maleriet er stadig i Anchers Hus tidligere kaldet da:Michael og Anna Anchers Hus. --Villy Fink Isaksen (talk) 18:57, 24 October 2016 (UTC)

Reverting P972 on Q11866Edit

Hi Fnielsen, I noticed you reverted my edit here with summary "I don't understand the deletion". I will tell you: This item has both catalog (P972) with qualifier catalog code (P528) as well as P528 with qualifier P972. According to the talk page at P972 the recommended version is with P528 as statement and P972 as qualifier. So that is why I deleted this statement. Have a nice day! Q.Zanden questions? 15:19, 24 May 2017 (UTC)

I see no reason to delete that statement. I have attempted an argument here: [3]. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 19:44, 24 May 2017 (UTC)

WikiJournal article and topicEdit

Hi Finn, Should there be a link between Q30314335 and Q43997683, and if so, what sort of link? Evolution and evolvability (talk) 23:10, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

Hi! Very good question. I did not see Plasmodium falciparum erythrocyte membrane protein 1 (Q30314335). I suppose that Plasmodium falciparum erythrocyte membrane protein 1 (Q30314335) is a family of proteins and Plasmodium falciparum erythrocyte membrane protein 1 (Q43997683) is a description of a family of proteins. Furthermore the Wikipedia article associated with Plasmodium falciparum erythrocyte membrane protein 1 (Q30314335) is a description of a family of proteins. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 23:33, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

Danish Culture Canon (Q1269747)Edit

Hi Finn, this is incorrect usage of part of (P361). This should be replaced by another property. I would use catalog (P972). Can you change it? Should be easy job with petscan. Multichill (talk) 12:16, 16 December 2017 (UTC)

I am not sure you are right. --Villy Fink Isaksen (talk) 15:07, 16 December 2017 (UTC)
What do you mean by "you" , Villy? Me or Multichill? I think catalog would be better. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 17:20, 16 December 2017 (UTC)
I am not sure Multichill is right. --Villy Fink Isaksen (talk) 22:06, 16 December 2017 (UTC)
I know part of (P361) is wrong. If you have a better property than catalog (P972), go ahead and use that one. Multichill (talk) 22:20, 16 December 2017 (UTC)

I am wondering if we can get some arguments put forward. catalog (P972) seems ok to use to indicate a list membership, even though the list is not necessarily a catalogue in the usual sense. part of (P361) is a fairly general property and I think one should select another property if that is possible. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 16:56, 18 December 2017 (UTC)

Hi! I wonder whether exact match (P2888) is the best option to link lexemes to external databases, but it surely depends on. Could you please create an item for the target database with metadata about it? -- JakobVoss (talk) 17:21, 3 June 2018 (UTC)

@JakobVoss: DanNet (Q26932303) is the versionless item for the resource. I haven't created items for the versions of DanNet. One problem with the lexical resources is that they tend to have versions, so we would need a property for each version. Interlingual Index ID (P5063) and BabelNet ID (P2581) may be an exception. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 17:29, 3 June 2018 (UTC)
How could we make a connection between statements such as most (L2333) exact match (P2888) and DanNet (Q26932303)? The common URI namespace of DanNet seems to be, so this URI should be stated in DanNet (Q26932303). formatter URI for RDF resource (P1921) does not fit, URL (P2699) is to broad, isn't it?. What do you think about -- JakobVoss (talk) 07:10, 5 June 2018 (UTC)
@JakobVoss: Maybe I should contact the DanNet (Q26932303) and ask what their thoughts are. At the moment the domain redirects and we get 404 from instance URIs. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 12:00, 8 August 2018 (UTC)

turde (L11274)Edit

I tried url you put into exact match (P2888) there and it showed 404 Page not found. KaMan (talk) 11:49, 8 August 2018 (UTC)

Yes, the DanNet (Q26932303) URI does not resolve currently, but the URI is suppose to be that one, cf. Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 11:58, 8 August 2018 (UTC)

Help us improving the user experience of Lexicographical DataEdit


I’m Jan, doing research on user experience in the Wikidata team. I’m currently discussing with people who are editing Lexemes, in order to understand their needs better, and improve their experience with the interface.

We noticed that you have been actively editing Lexemes recently (thank you for that!) and we would love to have a discussion with you about what you’re doing, how you work, what motivates you to create Lexemes, and how you imagine reusing the data later.

This discussion would take place as an individual interview with one of our designers. Via the communication platform of your choice, you’ll be able to share your screen, show how you’re currently editing the data and chat with us. The discussion would take between 30 and 60 min, we will set up the appointment depending on when you are available. Depending on your preferred language, the discussion can happen in English, German or French.

If you’re interested, feel free to reply to this message or send me an email:

If you don’t want to be contacted by us on this topic anymore, please let me know.

Thanks a lot for your help, Jan Dittrich (WMDE) (talk) 11:37, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

Danish has no genitive caseEdit

I noticed you added genitive case forms to søndag (L21643), but according to w:Danish grammar, there are no cases in Danish. The possessive is considered an enclitic. —Rua (mew) 18:48, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for making me aware of the concept of enclitic. Danish: A Comprehensive Grammar (Q54140873) pages 47+ speaks of "The genitive" for Danish nouns and the book does not mention "enclitic" (not at least according to the index). So I wonder where that leaves us? — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 22:20, 17 September 2018 (UTC)
The Wikipedia article explains why the "genitive" is not a case. The ending -s is not attached to the noun, but to the last word in the phrase. This means that any word that can appear at the end of a genitive phrase has a genitive form, even verb forms and prepositions. The article gives a few examples. The English possessive enclitic -'s works exactly the same, and it's not considered a genitive case either. —Rua (mew) 16:19, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
Nevertheless, Wiktionary's wikt:søndag (and Swedish wikt:söndag) does have genitive. It is very rare that an -s is added to a verb or preposition, but very common in nouns. If you want to alienate Wiktionary users, try to teach them how grammar works. --LA2 (talk) 17:25, 26 October 2018 (UTC)

Neutral forms of Danish nounsEdit

Shouldn't gammel (L31494) and ung (L31497) have neutral forms (gammelt, ungt)? --LA2 (talk) 17:21, 26 October 2018 (UTC)

Def for lexemeEdit

Hi Fnielsen, what's your opinion on Wikidata:Property_proposal/periphrasis? It seems to linger there for a while and now that we have sense, I think it would be useful. --- Jura 07:08, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

Property proposal for Imagenet synset?Edit

I'm wondering if you might be interested in reviving your property proposal for Wordnet synset ID? I'm doing more with GLAM organizations and image recognition, and this would be quite a valuable thing to have not as just an "exact match" but as a proper property. I think this would be rather easy to pass since there were all supports previously - Wikidata:Property_proposal/Wordnet_synset_ID. Thanks! -- Fuzheado (talk) 11:19, 4 January 2019 (UTC)

@Fuzheado: Yes we could do that. There are some issues, some of which was mentioned in Linking ImageNet WordNet Synsets with Wikidata (Q50347076). If we would like to be LOD'ish and like ImageNet synsets, then we should go for the specific version WordNet 3.0. It seems that the linguists have moved on to WordNet 3.1 and there are no good URI resolver for 3.0. We could also suggest both. There are a good number of BabelNet identifiers. It might be that going from Wikidata via BabelNet to WordNet 3.0 is possible. I haven't explored. For the Danish parallel to WordNet, DanNet (Q26932303), there is a Wikidata property for words (not synsets, yet), see, e.g., champagne (L40806). I suppose similar items could be relevant for WordNet. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 00:37, 9 January 2019 (UTC)

Thanks, Amadalvarez (talk) 07:33, 2 February 2019 (UTC)

@Amadalvarez: Good question. I refound it here . The ID is somewhat hidden, e.g., under "Fredningen og dens pleje" for "Link til fredningskendelse". I am not sure how to get to a page with a list of the IDs. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 18:16, 2 February 2019 (UTC)
Hard work !, not only but the manual task, but because I never know if I entry the full list. Well, this is the live of wikipedians. I will continue looking and, if I find it, I will inform you. Thanks, Amadalvarez (talk) 06:47, 3 February 2019 (UTC)

Strange gender on L41136Edit


Are you sure about grammatical gender (P5185) = nexual noun (Q61053035) on nydelse (L41136)? It seems strange (wouldn't it be better in instance of (P31)?) and it triggers a contraint violation.

duplicate paper added?Edit

Hi - I'm wondering why you recently added The Meaning-Frequency Relationship of Words (Q65952270) - specifically what your procedure for that was, because it was a duplicate (with a slightly mangled title) of The Meaning-Frequency Relationship of Words (Q57623197), which you also added almost a year ago. I've merged them now, but it would be nice not to have to try to catch these after the fact! ArthurPSmith (talk) 17:10, 13 August 2019 (UTC)

@ArthurPSmith: I don't know. I have no recollection of adding it the first time. I usually check up based on the title. I suppose that I misspelt the title the second time and that was the reason I did not find it... — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 19:47, 13 August 2019 (UTC)

WordNet propertyEdit

Hi! I was looking to see whether Wikidata had a property for linking to WordNet synsets and I came across Wikidata:Property_proposal/Wordnet_synset_ID from almost exactly two years ago. I note that the proposal was withdrawn because of concerns about consistency between WordNet versions and canonical formats. Do you think there would be any interest in resurrecting that proposal? CC @MB-one Cheers, Bovlb (talk) 02:03, 15 August 2019 (UTC)

@Bovlb, MB-one: Yeah. What I have done for DanNet (Q26932303) is to tie the property to a specific version of the resource. We could tie WordNet synset properties to 3.0 and 3.1.

Dear Sir,

I thank you for your efforts. We are managing to create a research unit called "Data Engineering and Semantics" in the University of Sfax, Tunisia. The purpose of this research unit is to gather Wikiresearchers from University of Sfax into a recognized research structure and have funding from Tunisian Ministry of Higher Education. In order to do that, we need to have a letter of support from institutions all over the world.

Stort tak for dit arbejde med danske lexemerEdit

Det er virkeligt fedt at se at dansk hænger godt med. :)

Ang. import fra danske kilder, har du prøvet at kontakte nogle af universiteterne eller og spørge dem om at frigive deres data til os under CC0?--So9q (talk) 15:00, 21 November 2019 (UTC)

  • Herligt at høre! Jeg har kontakter i Esperanto-miljøet og har netop spurgt om lov på deres Wiktionary. Om WMF har udtalt sig at ordene inkl. bøjningerne er CC0 så kan jeg egentlig ikke forstå at vi bliver nød til at spørge om tilladelse. Jeg antar at vi gør det mere for ikke at så splid og træde dem over tærene. Faktum for mig er at Wiktionary ikke længere (efter skabelse af WD) er den bedste måde at gribe opgaven med at skabe lexemer og binde dem til betydninger og i forlængningen ordbøger an. Jeg har skrevet nogle argumenter ned for hvorfor jeg anser at den platform er forfejlet. Det er måske lidt kontroversielt når Wiktionary jo faktisk stadigvæk har mange flere aktive som bidrager (og har investeret en masse energi) end lexemeprojektet har lige nu, men jeg mener at vi er bedst tjent i længden ved at lukke wiktionary for nye ændringer (eller sætte store advarselsskilte op) og introducere de aktive for hvordan vi skaber lexemer og Q-betydninger i stedet.--So9q (talk) 15:46, 21 November 2019 (UTC)

Public domain - bestemmelsesmetode?Edit

Under indtastning af data til malerier fra Nivaagaards Malerisamling er jeg kommet i tvivl om jeg gør det rigtigt, hvad angår "Public domain" hvor jeg angiver CC0 for bestemmelsesmetode. Er det rigtigt, hvis nej hvordan skal det så være? se et eksempel her The Holy Family with St. Stephen (Q75135172) --Villy Fink Isaksen (talk) 16:07, 21 November 2019 (UTC)

Batch adding "cites work"?Edit

Hi, Do you know if there's currently a way of automatically batch adding all of the cites work (P2860) claims to a publication (like in Q55120315)? I'd like to get the published WikiJournal articles up to scratch, but I don't know which tool to use. I'd like to get links to Scholia on all teh article pages, but it only makes sense if we can guarantee that the wikidata items are relatively complete. Any advice appreciated! T.Shafee(evo&evo) (talk) 09:22, 28 January 2020 (UTC)

@Evolution and evolvability: If the citations are in CrossRef, then I suppose the DOI-based citations could be made. There was a bot operating at one point by User:Harej. Otherwise I suppose we could build a tool that would extract the DOIs, add the DOI articles to Wikidata (if not already there) and link them via cites work (P2860). Another possibility would be to match with the full metadata, particularly the title. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 10:05, 29 January 2020 (UTC)
Do you have a feel for how much work something like that would be to make? I've no experience at that sort of bot production, but very keen to find people who are able to. If necessary, I'm happy to write a grant to get some funding it it's a big job (the same probably goes for the items in this bot request). T.Shafee(evo&evo) (talk) 10:42, 29 January 2020 (UTC)

Would you like to contribute to a WikiProject COVID-19 ?Edit


I saw you contributed to COVID-19 (Q84263196) and I was wondering if you would be interested in helping to create a Wikidata WikiProject COVID-19.

The goals would be initially (of course, they can be changed):

  • create a data model for instances of disease outbreak (Q3241045).
  • monitor the quality of the pages about national outbreaks listed in 2019–20 COVID-19 outbreak by country and territory (Q83741704).
  • curate the wikidata items relevant for describing the outbreaks and the virus itself.
  • curate and improve the information on Wikidata about scientific articles regarding the coronavirus (similar to the Wikidata:WikiProject_Zika_Corpus).
  • think and develop ways to process these items to improve access to information (for example, via automated articles in languages that currently do not have pages about country-specific outbreaks).

Would you like to participate in this effort?

I am trying to gather the Wikidata editors actively involved in the topic.I believe that if we act together, we can have a shot at aiding the global effort in containing the pandemic.

Ordia som stavekontrolEdit

Hej :) Jeg snublede over og tænkte på dig og Ordia. Burde det ikke gå ganske let at lave en lignende service via vores leksemer? Hvad mangler ev. for at muliggøre dette? Skal vi registrere almindelige fejlstavelser under hver form? Ved du du om der er nogen der sidder på en database med ofte forekommende fejlstavelser som vi kan importere? Måske kan vi samarbejde med LibreOffice for at begynde at indsamle denne data? Mvh

@‪So9q‬: Det er en udmærket idé. Der er en vis grad af stavekontrol i text-to-lexemes da man kan se hvilke ord der mangler. Jeg er lidt bange for at det måske er for tidligt med stavekontrol. Vi har jo trods alt ikke så mange ord i vores database. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 19:12, 31 March 2020 (UTC)
Enig, nytten afhænger af hvor mange ord der er i databasen. For engelsk begynder det at se meget godt ud synes jeg.--So9q (talk) 12:47, 1 April 2020 (UTC)
Ja, engelsk og russisk kunne gå. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 13:21, 1 April 2020 (UTC)

Citation metrics in ScholiaEdit

Dear Sir,

As I stated in a previous email, Scholia does not support citation metrics for scientists, papers and institutions. However, such metrics (such as the number of citations) are important to give an overview of the citation activity of the analyzed scholarly entity. That is why I ask if we can integrate SPARQL queries computing citation metrics for a scientist. I already adapted some of the Scholia queries for that:

I am still working on a query to generate the h-index and even the g-index of a scientist. I am also working to apply these metrics on other types of entities.

Yours Sincerely,

--Csisc (talk) 20:53, 2 April 2020 (UTC)

@Csisc: We do display citations information for some, e.g., "Citation statistics" at It is possible we should display information a bit better. It is probably difficult to compute the h-index within SPARQL. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 22:27, 13 October 2020 (UTC)
@Fnielsen: I thank you for your answer. I know. However, adding citation metrics will give a summary overview of the research impact of a topic, a scientist, a journal or another item. I know that the implementation of the h-index is difficult. That is why I propose to implement the i10-index instead. Please find the SPARQL query returned it above. I am currently working on implementing an adjusted impact factor currently available on --Csisc (talk) 13:23, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

'da' or 'kl' ?Edit

Invitation for the WikiProject COVID-19 call tomorrow (Monday, 15 of June)Edit

Hello Finn,

How are you? I hope things are all right.

I would like to invite you to the tomorrow (Monday, 15 of June) call of the Wikiproject COVID-19 at 15:00 UTC .

This is the link for the call:

This is the link for the etherpad:

The WikiProject seems to be losing momentum. Perception of the size of COVID-19 as an enormous problem is fading (at least in Brazil). That might be a sign of things getting better, but it is also very dangerous (as they might not be that better yet).

In tomorrow's call, I would like to discuss with you two important and related questions:

- How can this WikiProject best serve the anti-COVID-19 effort?

- What can this project offer for the post-COVID-19 Wikidata world?

As usual, if you have any topics to add, you can do so either before at the Project Meeting Page or at the meeting. or at the meeting.

I hope you can make it!

All the best,

Proposition of « parent language » propertyEdit

Hello, I see you on Wikidata:WikiProject Linguistics. I’m french wiktionarian who want to work on languages on Wikidata. After testing some properties, I decided to propose a new propety « parent language » to link langagues as natural thing (not like construct thing with based on (P144)).

Interview InvitationEdit

Hi Fnielsen,

I noticed your editing stats in Wikidata, which led me to look up your profile. Thank you for all the great work!

I’m reaching out to you because I’m working on a research project about understanding what motivates editors like you to contribute to Wikidata. We’re also interested in learning about how you feel your contributions are being used outside of Wikidata. Since you are such an active community member, I thought you might also be interested in helping to build the broader community’s knowledge about Wikidata, and why it matters.

If you’re interested, let’s schedule a time to talk over Zoom, or whichever platform you prefer. If you are interested, please fill in a questionnaire or leave a direct message. The conversation should take about 30 min.

Hope you have a great day,

Chuankaz (talk) 04:23, 14 July 2020 (UTC)

main subject (P921)Edit

Hello. I saw your careful edit summary and thought I'd explain my view on P921. I work on it, and I noticed your revert (because it changed the order of statements).

Things have become complicated, but several high-quality sources are now used for main subjects. I use PubMed ID (P698), both with a bot that queries the PubMed API, and by hand, looking at the starred topics on the article page there, in this case (for the same information). There may be narrower topics available, as here, for example from the title of the article.

I believe it is better to keep the high-quality sources and their referencing, and include also text-mining from the title, with the sourcing based on heuristic (P887) inferred from title (Q69652283). In future, it is easy to see, people may wish to filter by the sources.

What I do is based on MeSH descriptor ID (P486), which has the advantage that the broader-narrower relationship can be controlled by MeSH tree code (P672). In this case you can see also an issue, which is that there have been problems with P486 statements on the wrong items, or constraint violations. That is why I have now removed the breast cancer (Q128581) statement, which was incorrect; breast neoplasm (Q23929670) is correct.

There are also keyword statements: see User talk:Daniel Mietchen#Keywords as main subjects for comments about those. I don't think the data modelling is great, but at present they are being included that way for P921. These keywords are typically generated by the authors of papers, so they are authoritative. But they are strings only, sometimes hard to disambiguate, and often incorrectly disambiguated.

As I say, it is complicated. With fuller MeSH information, it should be easier to import by bot from PubMed in the future. The MeSH strings should translate uniquely into Q-numbers, but that synching of 28K terms, which is nearly complete, still needs to be checked carefully. PubMed is the best general biomedical source: but there are other good specialised sources. The broader-narrow relationship should probably only be applied only when the source is the same.

I hope that helps.

Flere exempler end polskEdit

Hej 😃 Jeg synes vil skal forsøge at slå polakkerne! Jeg tror et python skript som skrapar Wiktionary skulle være perfekt. Vil du være med?--So9q (talk) 04:27, 28 September 2020 (UTC)

Sagen er nemlig den at exemplerne juridisk set ikke er licenserede under CC-whatever på Wiktionary eftersom at de ikke har ophavsretten. Et skript kan derfor trække exemplerne ud og sætte dem ind på vores lexemer eftersom de er undtaget fra ophavsret. Dette burde holde vand på alle Wiktionary sprogversioner og skulle således kunne berige vores 300000 lexemer ret meget IMO. So9q (talk) 04:31, 28 September 2020 (UTC)

@So9q: Som jeg forstår er formerne nok at anse som i public domain, mens gloss og brugseksemplerne nok er beskyttede og under CC BY-SA. Så jeg tror ikke vi kan bruge dem. Jeg har forsøgt at finde en side der forklarede problemstilling, men har ikke lige kunnet. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 00:53, 3 December 2020 (UTC)
A ha. Trist. Nå, så kan jeg kontakte russerne som importerede former fra den russiske Wiktionary i stedet. Ved du nogen stor officiel CC0 tekst eller bog på dansk? Jeg har fundet en kæmpe mængde på svensk her som jeg via python kan trække læmpelige exempler ud af: --So9q (talk) 07:19, 3 December 2020 (UTC)

Derimod er jeg stoppet med at benytte DanNets glosser og brugseksempler. På Wikisource er der mange ældre tekster hvor ophavsretten er udløbet.

Great, I am happy that you will be participating. A presentation of 20-25 minutes would be ideal - you will have a 30 minute slot, including time for questions. I have drafted a schedule and hope to finalise the timings soon. It would be helpful if you could confirm that 15:00 UTC on 26 October is a suitable time for your talk? I will set up a page for the session when the conference wiki is ready. Simon Cobb (User:Sic19 ; talk page) 13:42, 6 October 2020 (UTC)

Lexeme Forms savner udråbsord og genetiv-former på navneordEdit

Hej. Her savnes formen "barnets" om jeg ikke tar helt fejl. Dvs genetivformene savnes i Lexeme Forms, orker du lægge dem til og sende til Lukas så formularen bliver ligesom den på svensk? Desuden savner jeg idiom og udråbsord i Lexeme Forms også.--So9q (talk) 15:24, 1 December 2020 (UTC)

@So9q: Mange tak for henvendelsen. Jeg har længe ville gøre noget ved genitiv. Oprindeligt satte jeg genitiv ind, men en henvendelse herover ("Danish has no genitive case") stoppede mig. Nu har jeg haft lejlighed til at tænke lidt over det. Jeg har bemærket at Retstavningsordbogens digitale form har ejefald. Jeg mener nok at vi burde have genitiv, selvom grammatikere kan hævde at det er et "enklisk" element. Jeg har fornyligt begyndt at sætte genitiv på egennavne. Her har jeg benyttet non-genitive (Q98946930) og genitive case (Q146233). Det grammatiske kendetegn "ikke-genitiv" er med inspiration fra Dansk sprognævns digitale fil. Efter min opfattelse må der være en forskel mellem det grammatiske og leksikografiske. Der er også tilfældet med foranstillet bestemt artikel, f.eks. "Den store mand". Grammatisk er navneordsleddet i bestemt form, men "mand" i Wikidata er angivet som ubestemt. Hvis man skal fikse det må det blive omstændeligt "ubestemt eller ikke foranstillet bestemt". Jeg ser ingen grund til at ændre vores annotering på dette punkt. Jeg gad dog vide om der er bemærkninger til annotering for genitiv? Fordelen er at man med genitiv har mulighed for stavekontrol på ordet uden at skulle i gang med at sætte et s'et på. Er non-genitive (Q98946930) og genitive case (Q146233) ok? — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 15:48, 1 December 2020 (UTC)
Øh, jeg er nok ikke den rigtige at spørge om dette. Jeg forstod ikke halvdelen af hvad du lige skrev, og jeg har aldrig været særlig stærk i grammatik. Jeg anvendte selv "barnets" i et brev i dag og deraf opdagede jeg manglen via ordia. Jeg håber du finder nogen at rådføre med om dette. Måske kan du hverve nogen på dansk sprognævn til at deltage i arbejdet eller en professor i dansk på et af universiteterne som kan deltage og opfordre de studerende til at deltage? Man lærer sig jo en del bare af at made wikidata har jeg opdaget :)--So9q (talk) 15:56, 1 December 2020 (UTC)

Precisions on P8394Edit


I saw that gloss quote (P8394) had a strange label in French so I tried to correct it but it's not entirely clear to me what this property is. Could you add a description in English?

If I understood correctly, shouldn't there be a citation needed constraint (Q54554025) ? (at least as suggestion but maybe mandatory?)

Also, maybe you would want to take a look at Wikidata talk:Lexicographical data#Author on a definition (scientific definitions) and constraint issues who use this property (it's how I discovered it).

Brev til ODS i dagEdit


Jeg er aktiv på Wikidata hvor vi registrerer alle danske ord i projektet leksikal data.

Jeg kan ikke finde permanente ID på jeres poster i ODS hvilket er et stort problem for os fordi hele ideen med en kundskabsgraf bygger på att vi kan linke permanent og unikt til andre steders indehold.

Fx har jeg netop skabt

Og vil linke til jer, men virker ikke særlig unik eller stabil.

Kan I venligst bygge unike permanente links ind i systemet?

Mvh So9q Wikimedia Sverige/Danmark--So9q (talk) 21:54, 5 January 2021 (UTC)

@So9q: Jeg mener at sprogfolk på DSL og DSN arbejder på at udfærdige en identifikator for ord. Jeg mener jeg fik vist et link til et test-website hvor de var i gang. Jeg har vist ikke hørt noget siden. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 21:19, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
Svar 7/1
Hej So9q
Tak for din henvendelse. Vores ord har selvfølgelig internt hos os unikke
id'er, men vi har (endnu) ikke gjort dem synlige for verden.
Problemet med permanente og unikke id'er har kun været et nødvendige for
netop den historiske ordbog ODS som benyttes som opslagsværk for
onlineprojekter som (fx) Søren Kierkegaards Skrifter. Den ordbog er
færdigredigeret så vi betragter *opslagsform(,homografnummer)* som unik og
permanent. Den permanent url/navn bliver derfor i dit tilfælde:økseskaft

Men jeg er lidt overrasket over at I vælger at bruge den historiske ordbog
ODS som basis og ikke den moderne ordbog Den Danske Ordbog (DDO), der
ganske vist er mindre, men som til gengæld i modsætning til ODS indeholder
ord der er kommet ind i sproget efter 1955. Hvad er grunden til det? I Den
Danske Ordbog er faste udtryk i øvrigt selvstændige opslag så det vil være
muligt at linke til fx "goddag mand økseskaft".

Hvis vi vil promovere permanente og unikke id'er, vil det i første omgang
være baseret på DDO. Et sådan projekt er i støbeskeen - i samarbejde med
Dansk Sprognævn og Center for Sprogteknologi. Hvis du er interesseret, kan
jeg forhøre mig hos de involverede kollegaer for at høre hvor langt de er.

Jeres projekt lyder i øvrigt meget, meget spændende - og relevant at følge
med i for os. Hvor kan jeg læse mere om det? Jeg havde ikke held med en

batch-edit WikidataEdit

Måske kan du hjælpe, da jeg ikke er nogen ørn mere i programmering, jeg har via denne side genereret wikidata til malerier med Artwork-skabelonen. Desværre kommer ikke alle data med mit sidste eksempel er genereret udfra dette maleri:,_Jernbaneoverk%C3%B8rslen_ved_L._A._Rings_barndomshjem_i_Ring._Rimt%C3%A5ge,_1890.png der mangler bla. størrelse og i andre tilfælde inventarnummeret. Mon ikke det kan rettes således at flere data overføres til wikidata. venlig hilsen --Villy Fink Isaksen (talk) 20:07, 16 February 2021 (UTC)

@So9q: Hej, ja. Jeg har forsøgt at udvide leksemet. Jeg gad vide om du har kommentarer? — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 08:51, 2 April 2021 (UTC)

Hej, jeg har skrevet det her skript for at hjælpe med at skabe nye leksemer fra dropdown-menuen. Fx skabte jeg denne gennem bare at søge efter den da jeg behøvede den her og siden klikke "create lexeme".--So9q (talk) 15:20, 23 April 2021 (UTC)

Singulare tantumEdit

Hei, Finn! Jeg har et spørsmål om hvordan singulare tantum (Q604984) brukes for dansk. Jeg ser en del leksemer hvor jeg stusser litt over at ordene ikke har noen flertallsform. F.eks. for jul (L37293) – kan man ikke f.eks. kjøpe juletre flere juler på rad på dansk? Eller si at været var bedre de to forrige påskene (påske (L37294)) enn det var i år? Jon Harald Søby (talk) 15:46, 26 April 2021 (UTC)

@Jon Harald Søby: Grammatik over det Danske Sprog, 2nd edition, volume 2 (Q61715535) påstår at det er singulare tantum (Q604984), men Den Danske Ordbog (Q1186741) har dog flertals formen [8]. Den Danske Ordbog (Q1186741) har ingen flertalsform for påske [9]. Googling giver heller ikke meget på "påskerne". Måske skal "jul" præciseres på en måde? — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 16:02, 26 April 2021 (UTC)
Jeg ser nu at Retskrivningsordbogen har flertalsformen for "påske" [10] ... Så der er forskel på hvad der forskellige kilder siger om "jul" og "påske". Jeg synes der er en del leksemer hvor entalsformen er den dominerende og flertalsformen er meget sjælden. For mange ord der ender på -hed er jeg usikker, f.eks. "kærligheder" ses lidt på Internettet men ikke i Retskrivningsordbogen. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 17:49, 26 April 2021 (UTC)

Text-to-lexemes for WiktionaryEdit

It would be nice to have this tool when adding words to Wiktionary as well. Splitting up the text into words would be the same. Then it needs to see for each word if that form exists in Wiktionary. For Swedish words in Swedish Wiktionary, this could be a simple category look-up, but today we have no category for that. Would it help much if we had one? All the lexemes (basic forms) are found in wikt:sv:Kategori:Svenska/Alla_uppslag, but the inflected forms are not kept in a single category. Is text-to-lexemes too tightly coupled to Wikidata, for this wish to be realistic? Ideally, the tool would use a simple API towards Wikidata that could be replaced by a connection to a dictionary of choice. --LA2 (talk) 17:14, 26 April 2021 (UTC)

Lets import all the words from svWT instead. Then we could create a tool that makes a new WT page with every new lexeme and everything is in sync 😀 So9q (talk) 15:14, 18 February 2022 (UTC)

@LA2, So9q: Med inspiration fra jer har jeg nu lavet en tabel for Wiktionary jeg kan godt se at det er ikke det der bliver efterspurgt. Jeg må tænke lidt videre over sagen. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 20:35, 24 March 2022 (UTC)

Hvordan skal vi gøre med "vegne"?Edit

DDO opgiver det som et substantiv. Hm. Hvilket køn er det? Jeg fandt det her "på foreningens vegne"--So9q (talk) 11:23, 3 May 2021 (UTC)

@So9q: Det er vist pluralia tantum, hvor kønnet ikke er klart. penge (L2955) har samme problem. Jeg har nu tilladt mig at lave vegne (L483532). — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 12:05, 3 May 2021 (UTC)

Call for participation in the interview study with Wikidata editorsEdit

Dear Fnielsen,

I hope you are doing good,

I am Kholoud, a researcher at King’s College London, and I work on a project as part of my PhD research that develops a personalized recommendation system to suggest Wikidata items for the editors based on their interests and preferences. I am collaborating on this project with Elena Simperl and Miaojing Shi.

I would love to talk with you to know about your current ways to choose the items you work on in Wikidata and understand the factors that might influence such a decision. Your cooperation will give us valuable insights into building a recommender system that can help improve your editing experience.

Participation is completely voluntary. You have the option to withdraw at any time. Your data will be processed under the terms of UK data protection law (including the UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018). The information and data that you provide will remain confidential; it will only be stored on the password-protected computer of the researchers. We will use the results anonymized to provide insights into the practices of the editors in item selection processes for editing and publish the results of the study to a research venue. If you decide to take part, we will ask you to sign a consent form, and you will be given a copy of this consent form to keep.

If you’re interested in participating and have 15-20 minutes to chat (I promise to keep the time!), please either contact me at or or use this form with your choice of the times that work for you.

I’ll follow up with you to figure out what method is the best way for us to connect.

Please contact me if you have any questions or require more information about this project.

Thank you for considering taking part in this research.

Gender confusionEdit

Thanks for fixing sex or gender (P21) in Kim da Costa Carneiro (Q29413322). Just to clarify, when I changed it, it was due to the fact that Prabook (Q25328680) (which is presumably edited by the subject) refers to Carneiro as "daughter of Vasco V. and Kirsten E. (Prange) Carneiro". --Bender235 (talk) 14:02, 13 October 2021 (UTC)

@Bender235: Thanks for the explanation. I did not know Prabook. I wonder how much one can trust Prabook? — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 06:05, 14 October 2021 (UTC)
Now that I think about it, we should probably take it with a grain of salt. Previous discussions on Prabook in WP:RS/N (see Archive #211 and Archive #268) seem to agree that it generally falls under our WP:USERGENERATED guidelines. Either way, thanks for catching the mistake. --Bender235 (talk) 14:22, 14 October 2021 (UTC)

Danish NonprofitsEdit

Hello Fnielsen, I just founded Wikidata:WikiProject Nonprofit_Organizations a few days ago. I've seen you created/edited some Danish NGOs. Perhaps you are interested in contributing? I'm especially interested if there is something like a national register of charities, an NGO ID or if there are umbrella organizations/lists of NGOs to expand the Identifier & Sources.
